UA in talks with Phoenix to build $140M center on downtown campusTags: arizona cancer center, cancer, university of arizona
[Source: Phoenix Business Journal] - After searching for the past few years for a hospital partner to develop a $140 million cancer center on the Phoenix Biomedical Campus, the University of Arizona is moving ahead on its own.
UA is talking with the city about building a five-story, 250,000-square-foot structure on or near the downtown campus.
Such a facility would join the ranks of Mayo Hospital in north Phoenix, Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Goodyear and the planned Banner Health-University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Gilbert, adding to the Valley’s growing cachet as a cancer research and treatment hub.
Dr. William Crist, UA vice president for health affairs, said he is in preliminary discussions with Phoenix officials to build on city land.
